Reimagining where we live: cultural placemaking and the levelling up agenda

Inquiry

The role that culture might play in delivering a Government commitment to level up the country is the focus of a new inquiry launched today, Reimagining where we live: cultural placemaking and the levelling up agenda.

The DCMS Committee’s inquiry will consider funding for cultural initiatives and how well the current model ensures that distribution goes to areas that might be missing out.

MPs will also explore how harnessing local creative talent and businesses could help bring back footfall to high streets and town centres, enlivening commercial buildings and protecting them against closure.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Friday 18 February 2022.
